Donald The Petulant

A little lyrical nonsense I've come up, re-writing Nellie The Elephant in recognition of the change of US presidency. You all know the tune, so do please sing along!


One dark day A troubled old circus clown Managed to win an election campaign and Donald was his name Four years on His dream went down the drain Fingers crossed, now he has lost, he’ll never be seen again


Donald the petulant packed his trunk And said goodbye to the White House Off he sulked, Donald trumpety Trump Trump Trump Trump Oh Donald the petulant packed his trunk And trundled back to his golf course Good riddance Donald trumpety Trump Trump Trump Trump


The new head of state was waiting ‘Biden’, his time Don had enough and left in a huff Joe said “the job is mine”


Donald the petulant packed his trunk And said goodbye to the White House Off he sulked, Donald trumpety Trump Trump Trump Trump


Votes were cast Don said “I won’t concede. “It’s fake news ‘cause I didn’t lose, Joe did not beat me.” No Trump cards For Donald left to play The chips were down and the orange clown was sent off on his way


Donald the petulant packed his trunk And said goodbye to the White House Off he sulked, Donald trumpety Trump Trump Trump Trump Oh Donald the petulant packed his trunk And trundled back to his golf course Good riddance Donald trumpety Trump Trump Trump Trump


The new head of state was waiting ‘Biden’, his time Don had enough and left in a huff Joe said “the job is mine”


Donald the petulant packed his trunk And said goodbye to the White House You’ve been trumped, Donald trumpety Trump Trumped! Trumped! Trumped!!!!!
